To help us learn the rules of the road, the Hu-Dad treats us for passing other dogs well. Roscoe claimed a deal is a deal even if the dog looks funny.
When passing other dogs on a trail, Roscoe can be a little challenged to behave well. To help him learn his manners, Hu-Dad treated us if we pass other canines respectfully. Now, when Roscoe passes a dog, he turns to Hu-Dad to request his treat. This has extended to dogs not on the trail, but in their own yards. Yesterday morning, Roscoe argued passing a particularly chubby squirrel in a tree was more or less the same thing, so he said a deal was a deal. Where’s my treat?

He’s a good student and such a sweetie.
He is such a cutie ! He should get treats anytime he wants them ??
Treats are great for training. I have created a few “treat monsters” over the years!!! Miss Ruby is by far the worst.
I may need to take your advice and use treats for my new doggie who also likes to bark at any passing dogs, squirrels, or anything that moves.
AAWW Hu-Dad-LOOK at that face. I mean a promise IS a promise although a squirrel is NOT a dog Roscoe! So-did he get a treat??
